3 oct - guillermo rozenthuler
Guillermo is a singer-guitarist from Argentina, a vocal improviser, educator and artist. He has been a huge inspiration of CVI (collaborative vocal improvisation) and I am so excited to introduce him to the choir. He is a real master in his field.
He has recently followed a lifelong passion for spontaneous music-making and conceived Anthropos: Songs of Humanity, an a cappella vocal improvisation ensemble alongside five other European singers. You can find out more about Guillermo here.
